The Russell Sale will proceed on September 12, 2020 using online auction platforms with telephone and absentee bidding options available as well. The First Strike Auction will begin at 10 a.m. MDT, followed by the Russell Sale at 1 p.m. MDT. Crowd favorite Art in Action will be a silent auction online with video spotlights of each artist available for patron viewing.
“This certainly isn’t the way any of us envisioned The Russell for this year but we look forward to offering all the incredible art included in the catalogue for sale in September and giving buyers a variety of ways to bid remotely, including multiple online platforms, absentee, and phone bidding,” said Christina Horton, a representative of the museum. “We are working with our auctioneer, Troy Black, to make this year’s auction just as exciting as ever so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own home.”
